Boots No 7 Hot Cloth Cleanser Review

Boots No 7 Hot Cloth Cleanser I know it's probably old fashioned but I do like the feeling of washed skin, although for me soap is horrendous, I love Hot Cloth Cleansers as they give the best of both worlds,  gentle cleansing with added moisture.  I do double cleanse,  we do it with our hair so why not our skin ? and with these type of cleansers you are left squeaky clean without the squeaky skin :) win, win I will try any brand of Hot Cloth Cleanser that I spot and do like to alter… Read more

Argentum La Potion Infinie Review

Argentum La Potion Infinie I cannot describe how excited I was to be given the opportunity to try this cream, as at £147.00 it would need to be seriously and I mean SERIOUSLY good for me to buy it ! Let me start by saying I am not a Beauty expert, and this is the opinion of a very ordinary woman :)  I have in the past tried high end cream like La Prairie and Creme de la Mere, and quite honestly not seen what the hype is about, and I don't believe in the adage that you get what you pa… Read more

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Nail Polish Review

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Nail Polish  I have only recently got really into the whole nail thing again, having spent 3 years with tips on it has taken me a while of looking ugly without nails to get them back into a good condition, as you know acrylics kill your real nails, but I was a white tip fan. Anyway, my fridge drawer is now looking pretty with lots of various colours. YES Fridge, it's a tip I learnt years ago, they last a zillion times longer and go on better, see Nanna k… Read more

Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask Review

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask I do like the idea of a little bit of pampering, and have to admit to loving a face mask, as you will tell from my review of   Superdrug Masks . I am very fond of Indeed Laboratories as a Company, the products I have tested in the past have all been extremely good and I would say good value for money for the quality of product you get. These Moisture boosting masks are new to me,  They come in individual  sealed foil sachets and there are 4 in … Read more

Perms , Max Factor Pan stick And Shaved Brows.

I Suddenly had a thought about how far the beauty industry has moved on since I was young,.....yes I do know it was a while ago :)  However not that long that it feels like a zillion years ago my Mum was spitting on her mascara ! For those of you too young to know what this was and are probably heaving at the thought, mascara came in a block with a strange little flat brush that you needed to wet to apply, well no one in their right mind was going out to the sink, so it was common plac… Read more

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Gloss review

My name is Lynda and I am a lip gloss addict, I have been using glosses since the days the Debbie Harry pout was something to copy ha ha, so I think it's fair to say I know my gloop. I have recently discovered L'Oreal Paris Infallible gloss,  "oh my lord" it is the first time I have ever gone back and re purchased the same brand !   This stuff is the queen of all glosses. When I bought my first one ( don't laugh ) i thought the sponge applicator was bent ( blush)  I… Read more

Twitter debates on Ageing

OK, I am standing here looking through the Twitter news feed, pretty bloody impressed that I am attempting to keep up ! This comes from the woman who went to the oven yesterday to get the jacket potatoes out of the oven only to discover a really hot EMPTY oven. hey ho lol. Back to Twitter, I am still learning the who's whys and wherefores of this groovy piece of techno kit, but something that occurred to me today, was it is one of those things you can take in two ways, you can eithe… Read more

Reflexology by Natasha Edwards

Hiya gorgeous people, thanks so much for clicking x I wanted to have a little chat about well being, we are all totally obsessed with clothes, beauty products etc but what about the inside, the bits you cant see ? I would not consider myself to be a very spiritual person, in fact I am a pretty ordinary bird, I say it as it is and life for me is pretty much black and white, they only grey is on my roots ! You probably don't know but I have a lifelong illness which is pretty crap and m… Read more

Superdrug Face masks Review

I usually buy face masks in sachets as I have no particular favourite, these lil beauties were almost the same price for the tubes as I pay for a sachet so i thought there was nothing to lose by giving them a try. Read more

Superdrug New CC Cream Review

Superdrug CC Cream This is my first time trying an own brand CC cream,  and to be fair didn't expect much, but I am a sucker for a bargain and as this was half price from 8.99 to 4.45 I thought I would give it a little try. I will firstly tell you what Superdrug say. What is CC Cream ? CC or Complexion Corrector is the ultimate multi-tasker combining the benefits of an illuminating foundation, an anti-ageing treatment and an SPF15 moisturiser all-in-one creating a seamless complexion… Read more

Women Vs Women

One of the things I have learned over the years is that it is perfectly ok to value another woman's worth, we all have qualities that we admire in each other, I for example have friends who would jump in a car and drive to foreign lands without the blink of an eye, I have another friend who does Yoga outside before sunrise as it is apparently the most valuable time of day..........I greatly admire these women for their passion and bravery, would I love to be the same ?  yes indeed… Read more

Are Teen Models REALLY Selling To Us ?

Please be warned this post may turn into a rant, Let me start by saying I have nothing against teens or young girls, funny enough I was once one of them, and have raised a couple of them and are proud to be the Nanna of a couple more of them.  BUT.......and it is a very big BUT, do I want to be sold to by them ? this thought came to me from the recent announcement that Kendall Jenner is now the new face of Estee Lauder, don't get me wrong I have nothing personally against Miss Jen… Read more

Sunday Bargains | Primark | H&M | Debenhams

Going shopping on Sunday's especially when you don't actually need anything is the time to mooch and get some serious bargains, coz lets be right, if you were looking you wouldn't find them ! First things first,  I always start in Primark, which actually is pretty dumb, as I end up back at the car park dropping off my big brown paper bags before heading off to any other shops,  Today was no exception, although most of my bags were my Grandaughters as she is heading off for … Read more
